Week 3 was mostly chalky and predictable. After Week 4, Associated Press Top 25 and college football rankings voters have some decisions to make.

Georgia’s win over Notre Dame is a better “resume” win than any Alabama win this season, but voters have been reluctant to jump teams. LSU’s win over Texas was more impressive than any Georgia win at that time, but the Tigers did not jump the Bulldogs in the AP Top 25. With that in mind, we’ll say the voters stay conservative and keep Clemson, Alabama and Georgia at 1-2-3.

Sorry, Sooners, but you picked the wrong week to be off. Auburn now has two of the most impressive wins through Week 4, beating Oregon in Dallas and Texas A&M in College Station. Gus Malzahn’s Tigers deserve the No. 5 spot. LSU and Ohio State can’t be moved down after lopsided wins, so OU falls to the No. 7 spot previously occupied by Notre Dame.

As for Texas A&M, what will voters do about a team with two losses through Week 4? It’s hard to “punish” for the Aggies for losing to two top-10 teams, but it’s also hard to argue a .500 team is one of the 25 best in the country.
